On starlit winter nights, skies midnight blue, millions of sparkling snowflakes drift to the earth and totally transform the landscape. The most humble dwelling becomes a snow castle and the muddiest mile a winter wonderland, wherever the snowflakes land. In the midst of a very unholy time and place, pure holiness and love descended into our world. What happened that night transformed the landscape of every receptive human heart and piece of the planet.
O Holy Night!
"Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace"
PEACE with God, others, and myself is the good news of Christmas
The Law: the system of rules that regulates the actions and decisions of the people in that community.
Jesus changed it up!
Matthew 22:37-40; Galatians 5:14
PRIORITY LOVE for God, others, and self is the new law.
The Gospel: the essence of or the good news about.
PEACE with God, others, and myself is the good news of Christmas.
